The Maya calendar “Haab” nears the end of the great cycle, marking the start of Wayeb, five nameless days that are considered to be extremely unlucky.
During Wayeb, the Maya believe the world is vulnerable and defenseless. Fear fills the hearts of all civilization.
In this time of weakness, Kukulkan, the feared deity, descends to the ancient temple to stop the great cycle from starting anew.
Doomsday draws near. Unless a savior emerges to stop Kukulkan’s desire to freeze time.
You play as Sydney Hunter, an explorer who gets trapped inside a Maya pyramid while he is out exploring the region.
Sydney soon discovers that Kinich Ahau (the Maya sun god) and Kukulkan (the feathered serpent god) have broken up the sacred Maya Haab calendar into seven separate pieces, has taken four precious idols, and are hiding them throughout the pyramid.
This all comes during the time of Wayab; the five unlucky days of the year. This has caused great chaos, and time to freeze if the Haab calendar isn’t found and put back together in time.
The local Maya now ask Sydney to go out and find all seven pieces of the Haab calendar, reclaim the important idols, defeat the Maya gods, and bring peace and balance back to the Maya civilization.
In doing so restoring time to continue…

About CollectorVision Games
CollectorVision Games started in 2008 and is an independent game developer, publisher & manufacturer.
The team features international team members based in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Mexico, Spain, and the United States.
CollectorVision Games started producing and manufacturing games for the ColecoVision system, and has produced over 100 games from the Atari 2600 to most recently modern platforms.
In 2014 CollectorVision Games started working on a NES game called: Sydney Hunter and the Mayan’s Revenge, it was going to be a clone of Montezuma’s Revenge for the NES.
The game was being programmed by Sivak (Author of Battle Kid series), hence the Battle Kid music in the Mayan’s Revenge prototype.
During the development, we’ve decided to shift the project to modern platforms instead.
5 years later, in 2019 the game has been released on the Nintendo Switch and Steam.
